NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

IVGID is proposing a sewer and water rate increase, with an average increase on water rates of 3.6% and sewer rates of 3.3% for a total average utility rate increase of 3.4%; as well as amendments to its Sewer and Water Ordinances (IVGID Ordinance 2 and 4, respectively), including:

The key changes to the Sewer Ordinance #2 and Water Ordinance #4 are:

  • Effective on May 1, 2017, all parcels proceeding through a building permit that changes the square footage or the mix of commercial and residential use on a single parcel will be evaluated as either commercial or domestic service and billed connection fees and water and sewer rates accordingly. Service that has both residential and commercial use shall be billed as a commercial service if the total square footage of the occupied building space is greater than 50% commercial. Service that has both residential and commercial use shall be billed as a residential service if the total square footage of the occupied building space is greater than 50% residential. Garages, sheds, and other auxiliary spaces are not used for this calculation.
  • Mixed Use Service: Mixed use parcels may install two separate water services to separate the commercial from the domestic uses, and pay appropriate rates and connection fees for domestic and commercial service.
  • Previously paid connection fees for service are non-refundable in all situations, including reversion to acreage.
  • Exhibit A in Ordinances 2 & 4 – New Schedule of Service Charges.
  • Exhibit B in Ordinances 2 & 4 – New Schedule of Connection Charges.
  • Exhibit C in Ordinances 2 & 4 – No changes to Miscellaneous Fee Schedule.
